Allow me to brag about my husband for a few minutes...
A few weeks ago, we found out that Shawn was nominated for "Nurse of the Year" at Shock Trauma. There was a dinner on Tuesday and we found out he won!!!!! I am so excited for him. Even though he might not show it - I know he is, too. It really is kind of a big deal there. Big plaque and all. The award is given out by the fellows (ask him if you want to know that means, lol) and they choose who is the most deserving. And, for only having been there for 2 years - that's pretty good!
It was nice to sit a table with people he works with. As well as "So, you're Shawn's wife. I'm glad someone was willing to put up with him," etc. etc., I got a lot of "Shawn is genuinely the nicest guy you will ever meet... We love Shawn... Shawn is a great nurse and we're glad to have him." And, after he won - "it couldn't go to a more deserving person." I loved hearing that! I really am blessed by him every day. And, I'm glad he gets recognized by those he works with on a daily basis.
I know, I may complain about the hours and how little I get to see him. But his job is so great! I wish I could say I helped people and saved their lives on a daily basis. He really works hard and is knowledgeable about what he does. It made me realize that, the time he spends there, really is worth it. I overlook that a lot and I always feel badly.
I just love him so much and I'm so proud of him... He's amazing!
